What a week.
I knew before IMNOLA 70.3 on April 5th that something was wrong with my right foot. I was pretty sure it was either a really really bad bruise on the top of my foot or a fracture.
I really struggled on the run in New Orleans. My left leg almost gave out on me and I now know that is because the left leg was doing 90% of the work.
I’m pretty ticked off and frustrated right now. I was livid on Monday. Today I have become a little more focused.
I have a stress fracture on my 4th med – something or other?????? It is the bone that runs from your ankle to your toes next to your pinky toe.
OH I SHOULD HAVE GONE TO MED SCHOOL!!!
I am out for 6 weeks minimum on run and bike. Initially my Dr. said I could bike, but then after knowing how I ride – I am not going to be riding either. He didn’t want me pushing it or standing and all I do is crush it on the bike AND I want to heal fast therefore . . .
I am going to kick butt in the pool for the next 6 weeks AND I am ordering the AQX Sports – pool running shoes and floating belt.
I am not going to be able to race in Gulf Coast which I really wanted to do in preparation for IM Florida. AND I am missing Louisiana Tri which I have not missed in my 4 years of triathlon. I am kinda sad about that. It is the closest triathlon to my home here in Baton Rouge.
The good news. I GET THIS REALLY COOL BOOT!!!!! WOO HOO!
